These special types of ink can be either stamped or patted with a sponge on the paper. Different colored embossing powders are used separately or together, which are melted with the help of the heat gun, giving a shiny effect. The clear or colored emboss dusts are used so as attain a very unique look. Even to get different shapes or effects designer stencils are used. By using deep embossing is a great way to create 3D words.
